Well it is time for our last read along of 2012, where did this year go?

Since BLOOD LANCE won’t be released until the 16thof Oct, we won’t start our read along until the 17th.  Many of us have read this series, and have been anxiously awaiting this release. 

But I would encourage new comers not to be put off from joining in, as these books can be read as standalone novels, but I think you will want to read the others as soon as you can.  I believe all of Jeri’s books are available at the PBS Market Place, and remember buying them through here will not only support Jeri, but PBS as well.  

The Q&A featuring Jeri, will be on Wed. Nov. 14thin this forum.  Jeri has been a great supporter of PBS and she has graciously included the PBS blog on her blog tour this year! I will post details when they become available

To wet your whistle there is a great article Jeri did for Poe’s Deadly Daughters, http://www.poesdeadlydaughters.blogspot.com/2012/09/knights-with-ptsd.html

I agree that the books in this series can easily be read standalone.  I'm looking forward to it.

For those who live in S. Cal.  Jeri is doing a boat load of signings, John's son went to the book launch last year some of you will recall and had a great time so if you are lucky enough to be in the area. here is the info.

 If you can't make it to the book launch, there are TWO opportunities to get your mead on: Mysterious Galaxy--I'll be there at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, Oct 16 (2810 Artesia Blvd., Redondo Beach, CA 90278. 310-542-6000) and at Mystery Ink--I'll be there at 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, Oct 20 (8907 Warner Ave. #135 Huntington Beach, CA 92647 (714) 960-4000)

Also Jeanne she will be at the Tucson Book Fair in March, as she had to cancel her Scotsdale signing.  This woud be better for you anyway.

OOOOOOO - she will be in Tucson in March??? I have to try and make that. Scottsdale I try to avoid if possible as it means driving through Phoenix to get there - and what a maze Phoenix is for me!!!! Thanks Letty!

Right now I'm waiting to see if I can get this from the library so it depends on that as to whether I can do a read along......

This will be the last read along for 2012, so I sure hope that you can get your hands on it.

What?!?!?  You are suggesting that I read a series OUT OF ORDER????  No...un-uh...no way it's gonna happen.  But to keep in the spirit of things, since I haven't started this series yet, I will read Veil of Lies while y'all are reading Blood Lance. I better hurry up and finish Sword Song!
